Cold as a Witches What?!

Winter has officially arrived.  Coldest week of the year here in Boston right now.

Seriously, this blogger needs a palm tree.


There is a silver lining to this cold bleak grey week.  I blame German dockhands for my happy warmth.


Wellenstyn jackets were originally made out of sail cloth, a material strong enough to withstand wind, cold and damp.  It’s like the shipyards of Hamburg are sister ports with Boston.  Brrrrrrrrrrr Frauline!

Glencheck, navy blue, camel, black, royal blue, metallic, grey, red, lime green, what’s your pleasure?  Any choice will deliver delirious warmth, perfect for building snow forts or surviving snowball attacks!


Waist length, car coat or bomber?


Down, faux fur, three in one shell with a vest to wear once it all thaws out?


Done, done and done.  There is even room to dabble in the mens section if you want a different cut.  Or surprise your man with a crazy warm winter coat!


There are now four Wellenstyn stores in the US, one in California, one in New York City, and two outlets, one in Chicago and one in Wrentham, MA.  Jackets at the outlet run around $400-600, and worth every single penny when the temperature is zero – not including wind chill.  #hatewindchillmorethanbangs


All Wellenstyn jackets are either waterproof or water resistant – this is very good news for anyone who lives where “Nor’Easter” is part of the forecast!  Plus each jacket style has its own adorable name.  Obviously “darling” called to me.

“Schneeauber” means snow magic in German.  reversecommuter thinks Wellenstyn may be a perfect synonym.

 

 

 

Black Striped Pants and Sex Wax

Actually the pants are coated, but not necessarily with surfboard sex wax (although that would be SO RAD!).  7 for all Mankind jeans, DVF top, Prada blazer.

Taped another segment yesterday for South Shore Style TV – so much fun!!!!!!

Went to Nor’Easter in Scituate – an amazing surf store!   Did you know you can surf in New England all year round?!?!?

Discovered an uber cool sun protection line, SUN BUM, and the up & coming exercise craze too… paddle boarding + yoga…OBVIOUSLY SO MUCH MORE ON THAT LATER!!!!!!!!!!

The best part of Sun Bum is that it smells so good you want to eat it!  And the bottles are color coded based on the shade you want to tan – CLEVER!  “Trust the Bum”  LOVE!
